WELCOME TO CLASS 3
 
Class 3 consists  of Year 3 and Year 4 children.
 
Our aim  is to ensure that every child feels that they are part of a caring class. A class in which they feel confident enough to try new things without fear of failure. A class in which everybody has something to offer. Our aspiration is that the children in Class 3 will become self-motivated learners through a varied and exciting curriculum. Parents are always welcome in Class 3, whether to discuss their child's progress or to help on educational visits. We want Class 3 children to enjoy school and to look forward to the opportunities each new day offers.
 
Key Timings:
Homework - Handed out at the beginning of term. 
Times Table Rockstars - Tues/Thu 8:30-9:00 for Y3, Mon/Wed/Fri 8:30-9:00 for Y4 (times will be adjusted for children who have a temporary later arrival time).
Spellings - Issued on Mondays, practised every day in class, tested on Fridays.
 
Your child will need to read to an adult at home and have their Reading Record signed, daily if possible. 
 
Class 3's Home/School Link - Class toy
 
Our class toy is Monty the manatee. Monty the Manatee (the story) is a charming, uplifting tale which explores themes of bullying and friendship and emphasises the importance of being kind. Monty will also be teaching us a lot about looking after our world so that manatees and other animals can survive in their habitats. At the end of each week he will pick a child to go home with who has worked hard on being a superstar, both with their work and general manners. It would be lovely if your child could write a diary entry with an illustration or photograph so that we can share their experiences with the class.
 
IMAGINATIVE LEARNING PROJECT (ILP) Summer 1st 2021 ~ Burps, Bottoms and Bile
Open wide – let’s take a look inside. We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body. Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouthwatering saliva. And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene at both ends. And whilst we’re talking business, could you recognise an animal just by its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Make a working model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture making machine we call our body.

We have attached a few documents below to give you a taster of what we will be learning. You will find fun facts, a glossary of new words, a homework book, more facts in a knowledge organiser, posters, useful websites, a suggested reading list and word mats. We will also be looking at these documents in school.

Our new class book will be Demon Dentist by David Walliams!
 
Weekly spellings, homework, reading record comments and topic content will be added to Google Classroom. Please check regularly.
